Meet The Team… or just me.

Hi everyone, I thought it was about time I introduced myself to you all.
I’m Sam and I’m the face behind SJF Golf.

I have been coaching golfers for over 16 years now. In that time I have been lucky enough to work along side some top coaches at some of the best facilities in Nottinghamshire and Suffolk.

I’m excited to announce that I was recently appointed the Head PGA Teaching Professional at Ufford Park Resort where I will continue to help golfers achieve their goals and develop the academy.

In recent years I have focused on creating more golf opportunities for females and children within the sport and I will continue to do this along side individual coaching.

If you would like some help with your game, please drop me an email and I will be more than happy to discuss how I can help you!

Please follow the link in my bio to get in touch.

PS… I never knew how hard it would be to get a reasonable head shot!

Do you practice the “hard shots”?

According to approximately 26% of golfers consistently break 90.

During playing lessons with clients, I find a big aspect that causes high shot counts is the ability to play the “hard shots” well.

How many times have you been in the bunker and taken more than one to get out or hit it through the green?

I’m determining “hard shots” as the ones you don’t tend to practice. Awkward lies, bunker shots, shots over hazards, shots out of trees, raised chip shots… the list goes on.

Next time you schedule in a practice session, try to incorporate some “hard shots” into this session so that you can begin to feel more confident playing these shots… it may just make the difference!

Junior Summer Camps are back!

Golf taking big strides towards inclusivity - UK DIRECTOR MAGAZINES 06/12/2022

Golf taking big strides towards inclusivity - UK DIRECTOR MAGAZINES By Stuart Robertson, Doctor Golf Academy, Ufford Park Resort As a PGA Professional for over 30 years, I have seen many changes in the industry; some of these have made the game completely different to the one that I grew up with in the 80s. Published in Suffolk Director Magazine Autumn|Winter 2022

Which is better?
Does equipment make you a better golfer?

NOT ALWAYS! Don’t be too sucked into marketing. Golf clubs can help to improve in some ways but will not “fix your faults” as well as you think.
Sometimes changing clubs will help your game, improve your distance, gain a higher or lower flight. But it often isn’t that answer to all your problems.

2 shots here…

Shot 1
Putter - Odyssey 2 ball putter with added alignment line + Super Stroke grip.

Benefits - easy to line up, comfortable wide grip to help prevent additional hand / wrist movement, soft insert to promote a soft feel. Face balanced putter.
New, shiny, looks good!

Result - In the hole.

Shot 2
Putter - Putting Cleek from Worsley GC
Around 100years old! Hickory shaft, NO GRIP!

Benefits - Forged head for softer feel.

Result - In the hole
